"Slowly walking down a hall faster than a cannonball" - Champagne Supernova - Oasis

or...

"My brother had a book he would hold with pride, A little red cover with a broken spine, on the back he hand wrote a quote inside, When the rich wage war it’s the poor who die" - Hands Held High - Linkin Park

Lyrics such as my favourite one's off the top of my head above are just pure genius from the guy making them and I really look forward to listening to them in a song so im curious...

These are mine so what are your favorites quotes from songs as well?

"I bet my hand I can stay here" MB20 from "If You're Gone"



I was listening to a song last night and one verse hit me but I cant for the life of me remember right now. Musical lyrics are my favorite.

Hear that lonesome whippoorwill He sounds too blue to fly.

The midnight train is whining low I'm so lonesome I could cry.

I've never seen a night so long When time goes crawling by.

The moon just went behind a cloud To hide its face and cry.

Did you ever see a robin weep When leaves began to die?

That means he's lost the will to live I'm so lonesome I could cry.

The silence of a falling star Lights up a purple sky.

And as I wonder where you are I'm so lonesome I could cry


Hank Williams wrote this song in 15 minutes sitting on a rock in his front yard late at night.

He said every verse happened while he sat there and he just wrote it down.

Red, white and blue
What does it mean to you?
Surely you're proud
Shout it loud
Britons awake!
The Empire too
We can depend on you.

This is one of my favorites from Jimi:

Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
'Scuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me help me
Oh no no... no

Yeah
Purple haze all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You've got me blowin, blowin my mind
Is it tomorrow or just the end of time?

No, help me aw yeah! oh no no oh help me...

Imagine - John Lennon

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Maybe I just want to fly,
Wanna live, I dont wanna die
Maybe I just want to breathe
Maybe I just don't believe
Maybe you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever

- Live Forever - Noel Gallagher - Oasis

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a sun,
In somebody else's sky,
But why,
Why,
Why can't it be,
Why can't it be mine?

Black, by Pearl Jam

....and..

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see there is so much more
and beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn outside the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Lateralus, by Tool

Scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far

heres two whole songs with great lyrics. I LOVE both these songs.

Gone Going Gone
Black eyes peas featuring Jack Johnson
Johnny wanna be a big star
Get on stage and play the guitar
Make a little money, buy a fancy car
A big old house and a alligator
Just to match with them alligator shoes
He's a rich man so he's no longer singing the blues
He's singing songs about material things
And platinum rings and watches that go bling
But, diamonds don't blink in the dark
He a star now, but he ain't singing it from the heart
Sooner or later it's just gonna fall apart
Coz his fans can't relate to his new found art
He ain't doing what he did from the start
And that's puttin' in some feeling and thought
He decided to live his life shallow
Cash in his love for material.
And it's gone...

[Chorus]
Gone going, gone
Everything gone give a damn
Gone be the birds when they don't want to sing
"Gone people" up awkward with their things gone.

You see yourself in the mirror and you
Feel safe coz it looks familiar
But you're afraid to open up your soul coz you
Don't really know, don't really know who is
The person that's deep within
Coz you're content with just being the name brand band
And ya fail to see that its trivial,
insignificant, you addicted to material

I've seen your kind before
You the type that thinks souls is sold in a store
Packaged up with incense sticks
With them vegetarian melts
To you, that's righteous
You're fiction like books
You need to go out to life and look
Coz what happens when they take your material
and you already sold your soul?
And it's...

[Chorus]

You say that time is money and money is time
So you got your mind on your money and your money on your mind
But what about... that crime that you did to get paid
And what about... that bit, "You can't take it to your grave"
And what about those shoes you'll wear today
They'll do no good on the bridges you burnt along the way

All that money that you got gonna be gone
That gear that you rock gonna be gone
The house up on the hill gonna be gone
That gold purse on your grill gonna be gone
The ice on your wrist gonna be gone
That nice little Miss gonna be gone
That whip that you roll gonna be gone
And what's worst is your soul already gone
Coz it's...

[Chorus]


Posters
Jack Johnson
Looking at himself but wishing he was someone else
Because the posters on the wall they don't look like him at all
So he ties it up, he tucks it in, he pulls it back, and gives a grin
Laughing at himself because he knows he ain't loved at all
He gets his courage from the can,
It makes him feel like a man
Because he's loving all the ladies
But the ladies don't love him at all
Cause when he's not drunk
He's only stuck on himself
And then he has the nerve
To say he needs a decent girl
Looking at herself but wishing she was someone else
Because the body of the doll it don't look like hers at all
So she straps it on, she sucks it in, she throws it up, and gives a grin
Laughing at herself because she knows she ain't that at all
All caught up in the trends
Well the truth began to bend
And the next thing you man
There just ain't no truth left at all
Cause when the pretty girl walks
She walks so proud
And when the pretty girl laughs
Oh man, she laughs so loud
And if it ain't this then its that
As a matter of fact
She hasn't had a day to relax
Since she has lost her ability to think clearly
Well I'm an energetic hypothetic version of another person
Check out my outsides there ain't nothing in here
Well I'm a superficial, systematic, music television addict
Check out my outsides there ain't nothing in
Here comes another one, just like the other one
Looking at himself but wishing he was someone else
Because the posters on the wall they don't look like a him
And so he ties it up he tucks it in, he pulls it back and gives a grin
Laughing at himself because he knows he ain't loved at all
He knows he ain't loved at all

People call me rude, I wish we all were nude, I wish there was no black or white, I wish there were no rules.

I'm sticking with my Oasis Theme
Because Nothing can beat it



Who kicked a hole in the sky so the heavens would cry over me?
Who stole the soul from the sun in a world come undone at the seams?

Let there be love X2


I hope the weather is calm as you sail up your heavenly stream
Suspended clear in the sky are the words that we sing in our dreams

Let there be love X4

Come on Baby Blue
Shake up your tired eyes
The world is waiting for you
May all your dreaming fill the empty sky
But if it makes you happy
Keep on clapping
Just remember I'll be by your side
And if you don't let go it's gonna pass you by

Let There Be Love - Oasis

I see your lips and I wonder who's been kissin' them.
I never knew how badly I was missin' them.
We both know we're never going to make it,
but when we touch, we never have to fake it, Leah!


Ah Leah - Donnie Iris.

Let's see if I can remember some of this off the top of my head ...

Depeche Mode - Somebody

... although my views may be wrong
they may even be perverted
she'll hear me out, and won't easily be converted
to my point of view
if fact shell often disagree
but at the end of the day she will understand me ...

though things like this
make me sick
in a case like this
i'll get away with it ...


You can find the rest ... for me, probably the most perfect love song ever written.



And the lesser known:

New Order - 1963

It was January, 1963
When Johnny came home with a gift for me
He said I bought it for you because I love you
And I bought it for you because it's your birthday, too
He was so very nice, he was so very kind
To think of me at this point in time
I used to think of him, he used think of me
He told me to close my eyes
My gift would be a great surprise
I saw tears were in his eyes
He never meant to hurt me
Oh, God, Johnny, don't point that gun at me
There's so many ways our lives have changed
But please, I beg, don't do this to me
Johnny, don't point that gun at me
Can I save my life at any price?
For God's sake won't you listen to me?
And though he was ashamed that he had took a life
Johnny came home with another wife
And he often remembered how it used to be
Before that special occasion, 1963
There was too many ways that you could kill someone
Like in a love affair, when the love is gone
He told me to close my eyes
My gift would be a great surprise
I saw hatred in his eyes
He never meant to hurt me
Oh, God, Johnny, don't point that gun at me
There's so many ways our lives have changed
But please, I beg, don't do this to me
Johnny, you keep on using me
Can I change my life for any price?
Oh, Johnny, won't you listen to me?
He told me to close my eyes
My gift would be a great surprise
I saw hatred in his eyes
But he never meant to hurt me
Oh, God, Johnny, don't point that gun at me
There's so many ways our lives have changed
But please, I beg, don't do this to me
Johnny, you keep on using me
Can I change my life for any price?
Oh, Johnny, won't you listen to me?
I just want you to be mine,
I don't want this world to shine
I don't want this bridge to burn
Oh, Johnny, do you miss me?
I just want to feel for you
I will always feel for you...

Amazing song called Hero Of War - Rise Against

He said, “Son,
Have you see the world?
Well, what would you say
If I said that you could?
Just carry this gun and you’ll even get paid.”
I said, “That sounds pretty good.”

Black leather boots
Spit-shined so bright
They cut off my hair but it looked alright
We marched and we sang
We all became friends
As we learned how to fight

A hero of war
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
And when I come home
They’ll be damn proud of me
I’ll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Because it’s flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

I kicked in the door
I yelled my commands
The children, they cried
But I got my man
We took him away
A bag over his face
From his family and his friends

They took off his clothes
They pissed in his hands
I told them to stop
But then I joined in
We beat him with guns
And batons not just once
But again and again

A hero of war
Yeah that’s what I’ll be
And when I come home
They’ll be damn proud of me
I’ll carry this flag
To the grave if I must
Because it’s flag that I love
And a flag that I trust

She walked through bullets and haze
I asked her to stop
I begged her to stay
But she pressed on
So I lifted my gun
And I fired away

The shells jumped through the smoke
And into the sand
That the blood now had soaked
She collapsed with a flag in her hand
A flag white as snow

A hero of war
Is that what the see
Just medals and scars
So damn proud of me
And I brought home that flag
Now it gathers dust
But it’s a flag that I love
It’s the only flag I trust

He said, “Son, have you seen the world? Well what would you say, if I said that you could?”

I have a few, here are the first 2.

by June Carter.

Love is a burning thing
and it makes a firery ring
bound by wild desire
I fell in to a ring of fire...

I fell in to a burning ring of fire
I went down,down,down
and the flames went higher.
And it burns,burns,burns
the ring of fire
the ring of fire.

The taste of love is sweet
when hearts like our's meet
I fell for you like a child
oh, but the fire went wild..


by Nine Inch Nails]

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hold
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

[Chorus:]

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

I bet someone could make a thread in ATS using only the lyrics from the band Iskra.

Just look at these

A Pig in Every Home


Civil liberties painstakingly fought for and won
Dismantled under a façade of ‘national security
Relinquishing laws that protect our privacy
A disregard for human rights; a failed democracy

Cameras on every street corner to survey the public
City streets under 24 hour surveillance
Police now decide what information may be disclosed
A monopoly of control with no accountability
The media claims people who don’t break laws
Will ‘feel safe’ under scrutiny
The right wing think tanks claim ‘criminals’
Can be identified visually

Employers can now record workers on camera without knowledge or consent
Employee behavior scrutinized by reviewing video documents
Employers can read employees’ emails and listen to phone calls
Employee life is micromanaged by invasive surveillance tactics

Police can now set up roadblocks without just cause or warrant
Immigrants without a license can be screened and deported
Roadblocks veiled as driving safety, pretext for accumulation of information
Regional licenses now reference a central database throughout the nation

Automated surveillance that can search for and identify a specific face
This technology exists and is used on the streets today

Cooperation with ‘security measures’: expanding their powers of control
Video documentation and audio recordings: to supplement corporate data
Electronic mapping devices to confirm a person’s movement
Enforced travel restrictions allowance for complete visual recall

Individual liberty; a concept of the past

Cop entries without warrant or consent
Email tracing, telephone taps
Terrorizing people of foreign descent
Special IDs, deportations and imprisonment

Fascistic initiatives to ensure power to the ruling caste

Infiltration / deportation / more cops / more jails
More lies / more crime / more poverty / more violence
Infiltration / deportation / more cops / more jails

The pigs in every home: a nightmare of control
